Why Belgium will Win the 2020 Euro Cup?

If it takes top-end talent to win the Euros, then Belgium is amongst the best countries going into the tournament and favourites on soccer betting odds. Kevin de Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku are considered two of the best players in the tournament. Kevin de Bruyne's superb playmaking abilities coupled with Romelu Lukaku's ability to find the back of the net make them one of the best tandems – if not the best tandem at the Euros.

Belgium's group is also favourable (more on that in best group winner picks), which would set them up for a good draw in the knockout stage.

Belgium is also full of veterans nearing the end of their primes – and hungry to win something big before their time playing for the national team comes to an end.

If Belgium gets quality goalkeeping from Thibaut Courtois – who has 35 clean sheets for Real Madrid and the best save percentage in La Liga the past two seasons – this club can hang with everyone in the tournament and are a good bet to win their first Euro Cup.  

Pick: Belgium (6.81) to Win the 2020 Euro Cup

Why Germany will Win the 2020 Euro Cup?

Depth and pedigree make Germany worth betting (along with Belgium) to win the 2020 Euro Cup. Germany is tied for the most Euro Cups (with Spain with three) yet has not won the tournament since 1996.

Despite not winning in a quarter-century, the club has been in contention every tournament since 2008 – finishing in the top-four the last three times.

Germany is always an excellent country to bet will win an international tournament – especially when they are behind four countries in the soccer betting odds. Germany's qualifiers for the 2020 Euro Cup are impressive. They went 7-0-1 with a +23 goal differential.

Germany is in the most challenging group at the tournament – but with three countries advancing from each, I would not worry too much about Germany finishing outside the top three and moving on.

Also, Germany is frequently the favourite or top-two in odds to win international tournaments – so getting them at five is the best betting value we have seen on Germany in the last two decades.

Pick: Germany (8.56) to Win the 2020 Euro Cup

Best Underdog to Win the 2020 Euro Cup?

Wales132.00

Wales is one country that is continually improving over the last few years. They made their first Euro Cup in 2016 and shocked many by winning their group and advancing to the semi-finals.

While they did not make the 2018 World Cup, they managed a 4-5-1 record in the qualifiers and a +7 goal differential in those ten games. With Gareth Bale as the captain and lead scorer, they have a player that can match any other country's top player.

Wales group is also relatively balanced, with Italy as the top club, Switzerland ranked close to Wales (13 v. 17), and Turkey as the lowest-ranked of the four countries. We expect Wales to make it out of their group, and once in the knockout stage – a player like Gareth Bale with experienced teammates such as Chris Gunter and Aaron Ramsey could make some noise and upset some opponents on route to the Euro Cup Championship.

Pick: Wales (132.00) to Win the 2020 Euro Cup

Best Group Stage Betting Picks - Group B Winner

Group B WinnerSports Interaction
Belgium1.60
Denmark3.64
Russia5.17
Finland17.52

As we are big fans of Belgium winning the tournament, it makes sense we are backing them to win Group B. Their biggest threat in Group B is Denmark – a country ranked ten spots behind them on the FIFA rankings (Belgium is 1, Denmark is 10). While Denmark has a good squad and is generally a competitive nation, they have not beat Belgium since 1995.

Their most recent meeting – in November 2020 – saw Belgium win 4-2. The rest of the group includes Russia – who are improving but do not match up well against Belgium – and Finland – who are in their first Euros ever this year and not considered much of a threat.

Pick: Belgium (1.60) to Win Group B

Group F To Finish Bottom

Hungary1.33
Portugal6.01
France9.01
Germany11.01

Hungary drew the short end of the stick, getting grouped with Portugal, France, and Germany as the odd man out in the "Group of Death." It is hard to see Hungary finishing ahead of the last two World Cup winners (France 2018 and Germany 2014) and the latest Euro Cup winner (Portugal 2016), even if this is the best-ranked Hungarian national team since 2016 (37 in the world).

Pick: Hungary (1.33) to finish last in Group F
